Applications are open until Monday 3rd April to host the Emirates Melbourne Cup.
The tour gets underway in July and will travel to 30 destinations across Australian and New Zealand in the lead up to the big race in November.
Local councils, racing clubs, schools and organisations in the Orana region are encouraged to submit an application.
If successful, the 18-carat gold Cup worth $200,000 could arrive in the Central West, along with some of the most famous trainers and jockeys.
Gilgandra was lucky enough to host the Cup in 2015!
